[Talk Gnosis] Wes Craven & Theology w/Dr. David Goodin

The director and writer West Craven is best remembered as a horror genius for “Nightmare on Elm Street,” “Scream,” and many others. But his career was more expansive than the horror genre including everything from an experimental novel to a heart warming Meryl Streep pic. What unites his work is a focus on meta, societal, and theological narratives. That’s right, theological! Raised as an evangelical Christian, a movement he rejected, his films say profound things about religion in America, religious mythos, and maybe even the nature of God. Dr. David Goodin returns to the show to discuss “Theology & Wes Craven” a book of essays he edited and contributed to on the topic. Don’t be scared, tune in now!
